Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, fiddle camp participants: 1. Gained a greater understanding of the history and tradition of selected Celtic, Scottish and traditional fiddling songs. 2. Increases their performance skills and musicianship. 2. Learned about the Contra dance tradition, learned how to Contra dance, and were introduced to Contra dance accompaniment on their chosen instrument. Headwaters School will conduct a pre and post survey to determine our participant's level of understanding of key terms and knowledge of fiddling and contra dance traditions. Instructors and other involved adults will complete an end of program evaluation and meet as a group to share observations and set goals for next year.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Those who completed the survey rated all aspects of the camp as "awesome" or very good. Some commented that they liked learning about Contra Dance and were surprised that they could learn a new dance. All indicated they would attend the camp again.
